Just unboxed and plugged in my new RP1 which came with Rega Carbon cart. Immediately i notice the sound is what i can only describe as muffled and sounding "far off" with very boomy bass.
I have tried separating my speakers, Mission 701s, from the wall more but to no avail. Ive checked cart alingment and it seems fine. I have dialed off the bass knob on the amp itself, a Denon PMA 255Uk.
I now suspect the phono stage. In my impatience I bought a cheap one from Maplin as my Rega mini Fono will not be here til the end of the week.
Could this sound be all down to the cheap phono stage? I hope so because at the moment the sound is not in any way pleasurable.
I would appreciate any help or guidance if I have maybe missed something in my haste being over eager to here the new TT.
